    Creating Graffiti Name Art:

    How to Draw Graffiti Bubble Letters ABC




     Please read through instructions before you begin:

    • Use a 8 1/2" x 11" white piece of paper (any paper will do).
    • Hold the paper horizontally.
    • Draw your graffiti name in the center of the paper. 
    • Draw your graffiti name large enough so that your hand can not cover it.
    • Neatly and lightly print in lines of the letters of your first or last name.
    • Draw the oval around the lines. 
    • Another way to create lettering: Boxes may be drawn around the letter lines for block lettering.
    • Trace the outer line with a black magic marker.
    • Next draw a shadow around the letters (see example).
    • Fill in the shadow with black or dark blue magic marker.
    • Next draw reflection marks (see example).
    • Optional: You may add additional shapes or colors inside your letters to create a pattern or design.
    • Once you are done drawing your graffiti name, color it in completely. 
    • You may use any colors you would like.
    • You may color your graffiti name in crayon, magic markers, water color, or color pencils (whatever supplies you have at home).
    • I can't wait to see the cool graffiti name designs you create!

    Remember: once you are finished with your artwork take a picture of it and email it to rherzog@wtps.org. Include the students name and teacher's name and grade. I will post it on Bells Online Art Gallery.
